Root = beta only, or feature?

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on June 16, 2002 06:08 AM
Has Lindows said anything about running as root only? Have they tried to spin it as a feature or anything?

It's a beta product, and I'd bet that "root only" is a temporary thing that'll be fixed when it's actually released. I don't think that they've ignored everyone whining about it.

But seriously, they tell you upfront that it's an unfinished product. Sure, I have no idea why they did this in the first place, but it's a beta product. Cut them some slack, for goodness sakes.

BETA = UNFINISHED

Do you really think that ROOT ONLY will be in the finished product?
